The ever-evolving 70–200mm is now available in the Sports line
The F2.8 zoom lenses are the essential equipment for many professional photographers. 70-200mm F2.8 lenses in particular are expected to perform at their best in various challenging scenes, from news to sports, landscape, and portraits. The SIGMA 70-200mm F2.8 DG OS HSM | Sports has high optical quality, a tough design and excellent handling ―all of the features required by professional photographers and high-end amateurs. The all-round, ultimate 70-200mm F2.8 is now available.
Embodying the concept of our Sports line of lenses, this lens responds directly to photographers’ needs with outstanding action-capture performance.
In addition to the highest levels of optical performance and photographic expression, SIGMA’s new Sports line of lenses offers the kind of action-capture performance that precisely executes the intentions of the photographer. Uncompromising optical performance and photographic expression allow the photographer to shoot fast-moving and distant subjects, while exceptional functionality makes possible excellent shots even in the most challenging of situations. Fully customizable, it allows the photographer to create his or own specification. It is an ideal choice for photographing many different subjects; birds, wild animals, airplanes, motorsports, and even portraits. And SIGMA’s exclusive software makes the lens extremely easy to customize.
Combining all of the features required by professional photographers
To make the lens lightweight while maintaining robustness, magnesium is used to ensure high mobility. As a lens from the Sports line, the dust- and splash-proof structure together with the water- and oil-repellent coating on the front lens ensure safe use even in the most challenging shooting conditions. The SIGMA 70–200mm F2.8 DG OS HSM | Sports also incorporates Intelligent OS* with an acceleration sensor and the latest algorithm capable of panning in all directions. The high-speed AF, thanks to the HSM (Hyper Sonic Motor) with an updated algorithm, captures instantaneous photography movement.
* In Mode 2, the movements of subjects can be captured without losing panning effects thanks to the image stabilization function even when the camera is moved horizontally, vertically, or diagonally—regardless of the position of the lens.
Water- and oil-repellent coating
Forefront and rear lenses incorporate a water and oil-repellent coating that allows water to be wiped away easily and prevents oil and fat from sticking to the surface, even in challenging shooting conditions. At the same time, the maintenance of the lens surface becomes easier.
Dust- and splash-proof structure
This lens features a highly effective dust- and splash-proof structure with special sealing at the mount connection, manual focus ring, zoom ring, and cover connection, allowing photographers to work in all types of weather.
This lens incorporates Intelligent OS*1 adopting the latest algorithm to deliver an image stabilization effect of 4 stops*2.
*1 horizontally, vertically, or diagonally—regardless of the position of the lens.
*2 Based on CIPA guidelines (Measured in 200mm with a 35mm full-size image sensor)
Magnesium alloy barrel
Blue – Magnesium alloy barrel
To help minimize the weight associated with a hyper telephoto lens, the lens barrel is made with a magnesium alloy. Both lightweight and tough, this alloy contributes to the outstanding maneuverability of SIGMA 70-200mm F2.8 DG OS HSM | Sports.
AF function switch with preset AF modes
Hood with lock
Incorporating 10 exclusive low-dispersion glass elements
To provide excellent correction of color aberration, 9 FLD (“F” Low Dispersion) glass elements and 1 SLD (Special Low Dispersion) glass element, in total as many as 10 exclusive low-dispersion glass elements are incorporated. From the center to the corners, extremely high resolution is realized, making the lens capable of meeting the most demanding needs of professional photographers in various shooting conditions. By optimizing spherical aberration, a smooth and natural bokeh effect is ensured making the lens perfect for portrait photography.
The three F2.8 zooms that exhibit maximum performance
Together with the existing SIGMA 14-24mm F2.8 DG HSM | Art and SIGMA 24-70mm F2.8 DG OS HSM | Art lenses, the SIGMA 70–200mm F2.8 DG OS HSM | Sports completes the lineup of three F2.8 large-aperture zoom lenses capable of covering focal lengths from 14mm to 200mm. The three lenses exhibit maximum performance in scenes requiring shooting under various conditions and circumstances such as scouting filming locations and overseas reporting assignments.

24-70mm F2.8 DG OS HSM ART
70-200mm F2.8 DG OS HSM SPORT
Customization is possible to improve usability
The tripod socket with 90° click stops, made with a magnesium alloy which is both lightweight and tough, is incorporated to ensure easier changes of shooting position from vertical to horizontal and vice versa. It can be attached directly to an Arca Swiss type clamp.
Tele Converters that are designed to match the current lens lineup (optional) can be attached.
* The addition of SIGMA’s TELECONVERTER TC-1401 or TELECONVERTER TC-2001 produces a AF 98-280mm F4 telephoto zoom lens or a AF 140-400mm F5.6 hyper-telephoto zoom lens respectively.
Offering customization for the driving range of auto focus enables a photographer to exactly reflect the personal preference.
Manual override (MO)
Manual override (MO) capable of switching two full-time manual modes
* By setting it to the MO position, it switches to manual focus by rotating the focus ring even during continuous AF. Using the optional SIGMA USB DOCK, it is possible to adjust the MO position’s sensitivity to switch to manual focus.
Compatible with Canon Lens Aberration Correction
The Canon mount version of this lens is compatible with the Canon Lens Aberration Correction function*. Matching the optical characteristics of the lens, this function performs in-camera corrections of peripheral illumination, chromatic aberrations, distortion, and more, to further enhance image quality.
* Function not available on all Canon cameras. Available corrections may vary depending on the Canon camera model.
Designed to minimize flare and ghosting
From an early stage in the lens design process, flare and ghosting have been measured to establish an optical design resistant to strong incident light sources such as backlighting. SIGMA’s Super Multi-Layer Coating reduces flare and ghosting to help photographers produce sharp and high contrast images even in backlit conditions.
Nikon electromagnetic diaphragm mechanism included
The Nikon mount version of this lens includes an electromagnetic diaphragm mechanism that allows it to receive the appropriate signals from the camera body. This feature ensures precision diaphragm control and stable Auto Exposure (AE) performance during continuous shooting.
* Functionality may be limited on some camera bodies.
High-precision, rugged brass bayonet mount
The brass mount combines high precision with rugged construction. Its treated surfaces and enhanced strength contribute to the exceptional durability of the lens.
The 11-blade rounded diaphragm creates an attractive blur in the out-of-focus areas of the image.
